I arrived in Lexington yesterday afternoon after a really quick drive and a really expensive speeding ticket. I couldn't find my camera until late last night so the pictures will have to wait until I return from New Mexico. We are leaving in a few hours for the airport, but since I was awake I decided to at least write a hello entry. The apartment isn't exactly as unpacked as I hoped it would be, all of the paintings are still in boxes and all of my crafting supplies are still packed away. Thanks to the new backyard Astrid now has dreadlocks and fleas so we had to do a major haircut and flea treatment. I got this recipe from my boss and it is a great way to naturally prevent fleas on cats and dogs.
Natural Flea Repellent
To 1 cup of water add 5 drops each of tea tree, citronella, peppermint, rosemary, and eucalyptus essential oils. Put the mixture in a spray bottle and lightly spritz the animal every couple of days.
